QUéBEC, Canada | 80 minutes | 2019

His monumental sculptures, often constructed as public performance, paved the way for contemporary art in Quebec. Born in 1929, Armand Vaillancourt is a towering figure of rebellion. A revolutionary and a tireless militant for the dream of a Quebec nation, Vaillancourt is also one of our pioneering ecologists, whose works explore the visceral connection between nature and creation. Treated with kid gloves by a deeply sympathetic documentarian, Vaillancourt has never been more voluble, sharing his love of materials and his astonishingly sharp, modern take on things. A portrait of a legendary force of nature.
